'Rustom' Movie Review

New Delhi: The much-awaited Akshay Kumar starrer Rustom finally hit the silver screen on Friday. The plot of the movie is inspired from the infamous 1959 Nanavati case that changed the face of the Indian judicial system.
Though the reference of Nanavati case was taken as the background of many other movies, it could not come close to the real life incident as ‘Rustom’. An intriguing plot turmnRustom is a story of a handsome naval officer who is being cuckolded by his lonely wife, her lover and a sensational murder. 
Rustom Pavri (Akshay Kumar) is a naval commander, who is happily married to Cynthia (Ileana D'Cruz). One fine day he returns home earlier than scheduled only to find that his wife Cynthia missing. To his utter dismay Rustom finds that Cynthia is away with her lover, Vikram Makhija (Arjan Bajwa) which triggers his anger to the extent that he kills Vikram. After the murder, Rustom surrenders himself to the cops and with this begins the saga to prove his innocence.
Though the movie has already got some good response from the audience but it is dull and the scene in the courtroom are too lengthy which could have been cut short. The movie could have been more intriguing than it is.
Rustom mainly focuses on the professional life of the naval officer rather than his personal life. Although the reason of the murder is because of the extra-martial affair between Vikram and Cynthia, the flashbacks give a different angle which emphasize on how a naval officer wants to safeguard the nation. 
Rustom also features Esha Gupta (Preeti Makhija), Vikram's vengeful sister, who wants Rustom to be punished, Pavan Malhotra (Lobo) in the role of Chief Investigation Officer and Kumud Mishra (Billimoria), the editor of a leading newspaper.
